one word residuals: president

newness of the new
samples new
the tasty mold
gathers all its
invention labeled as
Mr. Puffy
all stand up comic he
fashionably late
the party be over
they's cryin' in the streets
our gab be won the day
who's cryin' now
the party mends itself
old cake, musty mold
for the rest
if they be icin'
i ain't seen it.
has you?

Well, this one is bopping along between new and oldie moldy. I think I will have to come back later in the day AFTER I've had more caffeine and a walk.

I don't even know where to start - I was laughing out loud reading this. Moldy cake and Mr. Puffy, yes there is crying in the streets and it all seems like a lot of stand up comedy except for how sad it is - and then there is the picture you used for illustration buwahhaha

I got stuck at tasty mold on reliquaries. It sends me back to a trip our family took to Spain when I was 16. We visited Avila and stopped at the shrine to Teresa of Avila (my parents are Catholic, and I was named for her). Her finger was there in a reliquary all covered with this long furry growth of mold. Really creepy in a fascinating, can't tear your eyes away becuase you're so horrified kind of way.

I, too, will begin making my living playing poker online. It appears that by the time I am qualified to be a university professor, there will be no more universities... ah well, better late than never.

Dee: What else are you gonna do with a one word prompt of "president"? First, I was shocked that they'd thrown it up in the first place, and then all this buffoon puffery just started spurting out. I mean, are we supposed to take all this nonsense seriously? As much as I yearned for the Obama behind the passionate and inspiring words, I'm feeling called back to my anarchist ways. He's a mired as the rest.

Teresa: Moldy reliquaries, indeed. Oh yes, and tasty, too, all yummy. Kind of odd way to venerate your namesake, ain't it? Dust to dust? More like mold to mold, eh?

I'm glad to hear of your new career. With your tesseracting capabilities, I suspect that you will clean up - which should take care of the mold, too.

I found it amazing that your brain had hooked mold and reliquaries together (and tasty mold at that) this morning. At first, I chalked it up to being too sleepy to see straight, but the words were still there this afternoon after several glasses of iced tea.

Perhaps there is something to your interconnected pandas in the spreading, quaking aspen tree from the last post. My brains leak out at night and run to Texas to feed your imagination, or something like that.

Teresa: Something to be said for those quaking roots . . .

I think everyone wanted what they envisioned. Reality rarely compares...I was totally completely in love with JFK and we know now how that turned out...He is the dividing line for me. Not that he was last good president, just the last one I believed in. Though I had hope for Carter. He was just such a good man. Maybe you can't be a good man and be president.

Could almost laugh, if it weren't just so darn sad...

Dee: Good folks get eaten alive by the process.

Anno: And so we muddle on . . .

Oh-oh, a slip into politics. Two things: We tend to hear about the big stuff in DC, and that's business as usual to be sure. What we don't hear about are all the smaller ways in which an administration creates change. e.g. Public land returned to the public, 100's of millions of dollars flowing into the green economy, a more liberal NLRB. And Dee, Obama ran as a fairly conservative Democrat, and that's pretty much what we've got. Can a "good man" be Pres. Well, define "good man." Machiavelli thought a Prince had to be held to a different standard. I think he was right.

Oh, I was struck by the mold and reliquaries as well. Seems to define the state of organized religion - at least from the RC leadership perspective.

Richard, thanks for the under the radar comments; was helpful to my heart. Harder to hear/see/remember those things in this cherry red state of ours down here.

As for the moldy reliquaries, only thing is, they don't seem at all tasty, eh? It sure ain't bleu cheese . . .
